Alarm/False incident  supression in Netcool

Posted on 2014-04-08

Last Modified: 2014-04-13

I wanted to know if there is a possibility that the alerts for an application which is monitored by netcool could be suppressed during activities like change, upgrades etc?

How can we supress them/How to schedule downtime for perticular server in netcool?

I basically need a dynamic (not scheduled maintenance) way for my NOC Operators to go to a website or GUI, input a list of nodes that need to be suppressed for x amount of
time.  Once they put that list in, it should suppress all events from
those nodes until they either "flip a switch" or the time expires.

Can you please advise?

Thanks in advance

Are the events being generated by ISMs? You can just go to the ISM GUI and temporarily deactivate those ISMs.
